Description FORD ESCORT XR3 RED

Hi,    Welcome to the auction of my very much loved Ford Escort XR3, This is a very early model registered feb 1981 the first of the xr3, it is extremely clean having undergone a bare metal repaint in early 2015 in the original sunburst red, when it was stripped there was only 3 rust bubbles on the entire car it was very clean then just suffering from faded paint. 
1.6 cvh non injection engine, no power steering (handles like a go kart) very precise, everything works as it should, 
There is a few cracks on the dash which is common on all escorts of this era there is a repair kit available on ebay for around £20. while we are mentioning the down sides there is only one more maybe personal to me and that is the rear parcel shelf has speakers fitted, they are done very tidy and the shelf is mint but i have searched for one without the speakers ever since i bought my xr3 to no avail.
When the car is cleaned and polished which it is regularly it looks stunning, i take it to classic car shows and it is always the only mk3 xr3 there, even at the classic car show at the NEC this year there was no mk3 xr3s only the more common xr3i.
I have every mot certificate from it being 3 years old, loads & loads of service history.
I recently had a brand new webber carb fitted to the car but it tends to spit a little when cold but other than that drives perfect, very comfortable on the motorways even though it is the original 4 speed gearbox, 
                                               This is a beautifully presented original unmolested early ford escort xr3 (not to be mistaken for the later less desirable xr3i)  got to be one of the best around with an asking price of less than 10k, i am genuinely listing this car with an aching heart and wont entertain messers, i would also like to say that i am not in any way desperate to sell, i am mearly testing the water, the funds from the sale of this would go towards a garage building so i can restore my mk3 cortina GT, i am willing to talk about the xr3 and answer any questions that you may have either via ebay  or i can be contacted by phone on 07736777898, between 10am and 10pm, i will not reveal the reserve price but rest assured it is less than i have seen xr3s sell for previously that are no were near as good.
If the reserve is not met but it makes an acceptable price then i will offer it to the highest bidder,  you are bidding to buy and not for the right to view, as said previously viewing is welcome while auction is live and if you are the high bidder and the reserve is met then you will be expected to complete the purchase within 7 days, could i also ask for contact to be made by the winning bidder at the end of the auction to let me know your intentions for collection. i will accept cash on collection or bank transfer. i can also have the car delivered at extra cost after cleared funds, if you require a delivery price please ask before you bid, thanks for looking at my ad. Steve.
